Nice, Small Cafe in Healdsburg

I recently ran into a concierge friend on the plaza in Healdsburg who had just lunched at the nearby Palette Art Cafe. My friend said she had had a nice meal at this small cafe, which I had never seen. So I decided to check out.

Turns out this pleasant cafe and gallery is in the back of the building at 235 Healdsburg Avenue, just south of the plaza. The La Crema tasting room is in the front of the building facing the street.

The menu contains a nice array of salads, sandwiches, small plates, and fondues. It's a perfect spot for a quality lunch, with no fuss. They also have some nice wines. So if you want a light dinner with a glass of wine, the Palette Art Cafe might be the spot for you.

The gallery displays the works of local artists. You can see works in both the cafe and in the gallery space on the other side of the courtyard. Works may also be viewed at the gallery's website: www.palette-art.com.

The cafe is open weekdays from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. On weekends, they open at 8:00 a.m. and close at 11:00 p.m. on Saturday and 7:00 p.m. on Sunday. If you are thinking of heading there on the late side, call first -- (707) 433-2788 -- to make sure they didn't close early.

If you would like to take a private wine country tour that includes a stop at the Palette Art Cafe for lunch, please call me at (866) 326-4237 (toll free) or e-mail me by clicking here.
